Possible error with adding new format of book already in Calibre

Hi
Sorry for my English - it's not mine natural language

I've spotted something strange when try to add another format of a book already in the Calibre. If I copy a new format of a ebook , for example txt, in the same folder where original ebook is, and add it to right ebook , after I press OK, size of a new format is 0. Calibre erases content of a new file , and lives only a file name.

Best regards

You should not copy books directly into the Calibre folders so that is not the way you should add a new book format. Instead consider the calibre folders like a "black box" that only calibre knows how to manipulate correctly.

What you should do is find the exiting book entry in Calibre, select the Edit Metadata option, and then add the new format from the Edit Metadata dialog. This will copy it into the correct place in calibre with the correct name. It will also update the metadata database correctly.
